Follow-up to the Hollywood Celebrity Sporting Clays Invitational
Many of you will remember the interviews I did regarding the 2011 Hollywood Celebrity Sporting Clays Invitational. Sadly, I was unable to attend this years event, but I plan on attending and helping out for next time. Speaking of helping out, I received this letter from Patrick Kilpatrick yesterday and I felt compelled to post it. You can read the letter for yourself, but in a nutshell they went over-budget and are in need of some more donations. The best part is, they aren't just asking for cash donations (which I am sure you can make). They are offering up hunting excursions through auction. The instructions on how to bid are listed in the letter. Remember, these donations go to the orphans, widows, paralyzed veterans and wounded warriors (charities listed on the HCSC website).

The dates are wide open right now for the whitetail hunt and the African safari. They are looking to help accommodate the winning bidders.

Dear Friends,
As we bring the 2011 Hollywood Celebrity Sporting Clays Invitational to a close we wanted to make you aware of some challenges we face.


Officially, it’s now been recorded that we fed 1,282 people in 2 days. Resulting in a catering bill that has doubled which has consequently created a substantial monetary shortfall.


Rather than simply asking for additional donations or additional sponsor dollars we have assembled the following hunts to be offered for bargain sale to cover the shortfall, supplementing the monies going to the designated charities.
  1. The hunt from Freedom Hunters & Licking River Outfitters – Kentucky whitetail deer hunt. The individual who gets this hunt will be going with 3 service people on this hunt. Winner can choose either bow, muzzleloader OR a rifle season hunt – it does not include license / tag fees nor airfare. Meals and accommodations are included.
  2. An additional pheasant hunt in South Dakota with celebrities and filming – this is a mirror of the one we have already auctioned off + celebrities. 4 people -- 3 days pheasant hunting – it does not include license / tag fees nor airfare. Meals and accommodations are included.
  3. Mystery, African safari hunt – details still forthcoming but we promise we will make it an adventure of a lifetime, in all its glory – it will not include license / tag fees nor airfare. Meals and accommodations are included. 
Of course if you have a wonderful hunt or fishing adventure to be added to these auctions -- the orphans, widows, paralyzed veterans and wounded warriors would greatly appreciate it.

Please email your bids to
Kilpatrick203@gmail.com – please include in it the highest amount you will bid, your name, your contact number and current email address. Let us know if you would like us to phone you in case you have been outbid, please include your current cell number and indicate if you desire this or not. Once these hunts are secured with a winner we will work with you to customize each journey for the respective winner.

Remember, this is completely, 100% tax deductible.

Deadline is in a week – on next Wednesday, July 13th – at high noon. This is for all bids. Auctions will go to the highest bidder.

Once again, thank you one and all – for your every participation. Thank you also for helping to put the event over the top.

Best and love,
Patrick Kilpatrick
